Infotainment and technology options are plentiful in the 2010 Chrysler 300, and it has definite appeal for geeks and those who spend a lot of time in the car. New for 2010 are keyless entry and a rear-parking assistance system, both of which are standard on the 300C. Other features include a Bluetooth connection, iPod connectivity, a six-disc changer, a MyGIG audio entertainment system, a Boston Acoustics speaker package, Sirius Backseat TV, remote start, and adaptive cruise control.
The 2010 Chrysler 300 is available in a wide array of trim levels, and between those trims and the options list, there is something for consumers in just about every price range. TheCarConnection.com discovers that while the base-level Chrysler 300 can be understandably feature-light, other trims offer a long list of standard features. Edmunds reviewers find that the 2010 Chrysler 300 LX "comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, full power accessories...eight-way power driver seat," and a "four-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player and auxiliary audio jack."
Stepping up to the Chrysler 300 Touring, ConsumerGuide reports that the standard features expand to include "dual-zone automatic climate controls" and "heated power mirrors," along with "satellite radio." Moving further up the ladder, the Limited trim is even better stocked, notes Edmunds, which says it includes a "trip computer, steering wheel audio controls and a six-speaker touchscreen-operated stereo with six-CD changer and 30GB hard drive for digital music storage." The major standard features available on the Chrysler 300C and 300 SRT8 models include a "Boston Acoustics eight-speaker sound system" and "power sun roof," according to Kelley Blue Book. Additionally, new for 2010 on the 300C model is Chrysler’s Keyless Entry/Go system, as well as the ParkSense rear parking system. Both features make the 300C even more attractive, especially the latter addition, considering the 300C’s considerable bulk.
While the standard features are plentiful, it’s the options list where you’ll see the more appealing features—be careful, though, as there are enough options to drive the price of a fully loaded Chrysler 300 SRT8 to the $50,000 mark.
Major options are typically grouped in packages with availability depending on the trim level. Examples include hard-drive-based and surround-sound audio systems, a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with Sirius TV, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth, and an iPod interface." For the business executive who want to make an intimidating entrance, a long-wheelbase edition includes "writing tables, footrests, illuminated vanity mirrors, adjustable reading lights and 12-volt power plugs for charging mobile electronic devices" from the backseat, reports Cars.com.
With so many features available for the 2010 Chrysler 300, it’s hard not to go overboard.
